Months had passed since Niall left Lily. Lily didn't get any letters from him. She couldn't write to him because she didn't have his address.
One day, when she came back from school, she turned on the T.V.
It was the X Factor. Lily thought since she was terribly bored, she would just watch it. But she saw something amazing. Someone whom she knew.
He had bright blonde hair and blue eyes. He was cuter than anyone else in the world.
The judges asked, "What's your name?"
The boy said, "Niall. Niall Horan."
Lily stared at the T.V. screen. It was Niall. The Niall. Niall James Horan! And he was going to be a singer. He was in the X Factor!
Lily started to remember those days when Niall sung to her. She wished that she could hear him sing to her. But she knew that the closest way to hear it that moment would be by the T.V.
Niall's voice hadn't changed a bit. Lily gazed into Niall's eyes. It was the same eyes that she gazed into before, but it was different.
Niall didn't gaze back at her. She was just gazing at the T.V.
When Niall was done singing, Lily was crying. She missed Niall too much. It was hard to get over the fact that he was gone, and she still hadn't, really. But now, all of her emotions just came out.
Lily turned off the T.V.
But she knew that at least one thing was good.
Niall was taking one step up to his dream.
Being a famous singer.
*A month later*
In the X Factor, they were competing in teams. Lily watched it every day because Niall was in it. Niall was grouped with Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, and Liam Payne.
So far, they were doing great! They sounded awesome.
*Two weeks later*
The competition was over. Niall's team didn't win, but they were in third place. Lily was really happy. But she wished that Niall was by her side.
She heard that they were thinking about making a group named One Direction.
Lily though, 'If the group is formed, I would be their number one fan...'
